For generations, body makeup has been designed specifically to cover up physical flaws on our faces. But as the years and modern technology have progressed, so have makeup choices.
Enter the concept of body makeup.
More of an art form in many ways, body makeup is really just a collection of traditional beauty products that can be used for the body, in addition to the face.
Some users just starting out can find it a bit strange putting makeup on other parts of the body. But in reality, it’s pretty much the same concept as face makeup.
Leg and body cosmetics are used for coverage of issues on the skin such as scratches, cuts, stretch marks, varicose veins, bruises and scars. Although some people aren’t all that concerned with the occasional leg scratch or with age spots, there are others who are greatly bothered by such things.
Take the bride on her wedding day, as an example. The last thing she likely wants is a skin imperfection out in the open for all to see on her big day.
Products that can be used on other parts of the body include concealer and body foundation, which can be applied either by yourself or by using a professional makeup artist.
There are multiple different types of body beauty items, including popular brands of leg makeup. Examples that can enhance your look include skin mists, self tanners for the face and body, blurring lotions, shimmering lotions, body foundation with SPF 25 and even combined leg and body makeup.
The trend of glowing skin has become much more popular recently, especially when the summer season begins in North America. With most people desiring healthy looking skin, especially when the weather is warm, companies have come out with many body shimmering alternatives such as sprays, lotions, luminous body foundation, creams and oils.
And heading to Hollywood, celebrity makeup artists have been tasked for years with making their clientele’s skin look good for a multitude of special events. Body makeup is commonly used on runways, red carpet premieres and photoshoots, as well as at many other star-studded events throughout the city.
